Japan 2018 V
Yesterday we traveled from Tokyo to Kamakura. We traveled near Sagami bay on the Pacific Ocean side of Japan and had some great views of Fuji-san. We visited Hasedera in Kamakura. The story is that twin statues were made of kannon bosatsu the bodhisatva in Nara. One statue was lost and ended up on the shores of Kamakura. The statue was covered in oysters, recovered and Hasedera was built to house the gold statue. Inside the adjoining cave I lite a candle to Amida Buddha. Namoamidabutsu. BTW I also lite a candle to the statue of the god of sake.
